Unidentified boxing day amphibian

 photo IMGP2744_zpshicv74xn.jpg
When I first encountered salamanders in the swampy seep at the edge of Ward's Pond, I misidentified them as northern dusky salamanders; a fried suggested it might be the leadback phase of the red-backed salamander; then, more recently, it was suggested that this is the two-lined salamander. This picture was taken on an uncommonly warm December 26. I think I'll return to the pond in spring, with my more knowledgable friends, to settle this amphibian mystery.
